Welcome to Third Grade!


My name is Ms. McDowell and I'm so excited to be your teacher this school year!


I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and graduated from Lindenwood University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I am certified EC-4th grade and ESL. I have also completed my GT hours. This is my eleventh year at Timber Creek Elementary. I am so excited to teach third grade again this year! I can't wait to see how much the students grow! I taught preschool and pre-kindergarten at The Goddard School for two and a half years before coming to Timber Creek. I love to read and want to encourage lifelong reading in my classroom. We will read any chance we get!


Not only am I a teacher, but I am a mommy to two beautiful kids. Carson is ten and will be in Fifth Grade at Timber Creek this year!  Kendyl will be eight in October and will be in second grade.  We love to explore different parks and play outside. I absolutely love being a mommy to these two kiddos. I am truly blessed. In my free time I love to read, craft, and catch up on Netflix shows. I also really enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Traveling is becoming a new hobby of mine. I love exploring new cities and learning about their histories. Some of my favorite places have been Paris, The Bahamas, and my latest adventure, Washington DC.


My teaching partner is Mrs. McKenney. I will teach ELA/Social Studies and Mrs. McKenney will teach Math/Science. I'm excited to work with her to ensure success in both of our classrooms. I look forward to getting to know you and your family this school year.
